Don’t miss a ride on the Zoo Train! Each round trip takes about 20 minutes and provides a peek at behind-the-scenes areas, as well as a new perspective on many of your favorite animal exhibits. 


Giraffe Experience 

Meet the Zoo’s tallest residents up close!  Hand feed the giraffes while you get to know our herd up close and in person.


Inside Scoop 

What’s on the menu? Visit the animal kitchen and see what it takes to prepare over 1,000 meals a day for the animals in the Zoo.


Discovery Stations 

What will your students discover?  Explore animal artifacts, enjoy a hands-on science activity, and meet one of the Zoo’s animal ambassadors up close and in person.



Pre-order lunch from the Zoo and it will be ready to pick up at the time you choose from the Ridley-Tree House Restaurant.
